Megyn Kelly is on the verge of making a comeback.
But since she’s doing so with her own media group, she doesn’t owe anything to the corporate Fake News Media.
And Megyn Kelly just exposed MSNBC’s dirty little secret about their Trump coverage.
Now that her lucrative contract with NBC is over, Megyn Kelly launched her own media company, starting out with a new podcast.
During the first episode of her show, Kelly interviewed left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald.
Greenwald shared how MSNBC banned him from appearing on the network after he disputed the Russian collusion conspiracy theory.
Kelly took the ball from there, revealing how MSNBC was in dire financial straits before Trump was elected and gave the network new life with a massive ratings boost.
“At the end of Obama’s second term I was at the White House Christmas party, and you know, they invite the journalists for one of those,” Kelly recounted. “And I saw Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC, and I said, ‘Hey, how you doing?’”
“And he said, and I quote, ‘I am on a sinking ship known as MSNBC,’” Kelly revealed.
Greenwald confirmed Kelly’s account, noting he had friends at MSNBC who were once in danger of losing their jobs over the networks rock bottom ratings.
But the 2016 election changed all of that, Greenwald noted, as MSNBC and CNN realized they could monetize the outrage toward President Trump through the 24-hour news cycle.
“It’s become a huge profit model for media to pretend that they’re kind of on the front lines of . . . this unprecedented assault on democracy by this fascist dictator,” Greenwald added.
The worst part of it is, none of these bad actors are held accountable for their irresponsible coverage and spreading outright lies.
At the height of the Russia collusion hysteria, Rachel Maddow regularly spewed nothing but lies and vitriol toward the President leading to soaring ratings with over three million viewers a night, at the time making her the highest rated host on cable news.
In order to cash in on Donald Trump, MSNBC and CNN chose to routinely lie to their viewers to keep them perpetually outraged.
